Second purchase of this product!

  • Excerpt: Versatile, easy to use, very smooth. I bought this head and tripod years ago and loved it. During our last move, the spring clamp on the head was broken when our gorilla movers got their hands on it.... I didn't hesitate to get the exact same head to replace the broken one. Well worth the extra $$$.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Highly Compatible, Professional Quality

Great video head for the price

  • Excerpt: I've had one of these heads for about 5 years until it broke due to mishandling. I immediately replaced it with the exact same one. This head goes with my travel tripod, which ends up getting far more use than my Sachtler Ace-M because of how much easier it is to carry around with me.There are obvious deficiencies when you compare a $[*] head to one costing hundreds of dollars - it can't support much more than an SLR w/ a moderately heavy lens, and it is definitely...
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion

Sturdy but Smooth for Video Shoots

  • Excerpt: I recommend wholeheartedly this tripod. It's sturdy, very strong joints yet light and flexible. The head feels like a fluid head, makes smooth pans. The only think is it's height. You can't spread its legs much if you want your head to be higher than 6 feet, and at that height it starts to feel wobbly a little. I like to travel light and I feel good that this tripod will perform well.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Sturdy, Unfolds Quickly

Fantastic inexpensive fluid head tripod

Marcus the videographer, B&H Photo
24 October 2013
  • Excerpt: I'm beginning my career as a professional photographer and videographer. I use this tripod for dslr video and it works great. Very smooth and lightweight. I run around a lot when shooting and it is easy to grab and move. The legs take time to collapse because they aren't quick release latches like some other tripods. So I'm not wild about that. And sometimes the tripod will slip whilst panning because it isn't very heavy. Overall, great buy for the money.
  • Pros: Good Stability, Lightweight

A Solid Tripod

13 October 2013
  • Excerpt: I use this for shooting DSLR film. It's a sturdy, easy-to-use tripod with a level and a quick release plate. The QR plate feels a flimsy but if you're careful with it, it should be fine.
  • Pros: Good Stability, Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: Weak Construction

Very nice tripod!

Teckyfile, B&H Photo
7 April 2013
  • Excerpt: This tripod seems to be built well and it feels nice and sturdy with my Canon 60D seated on it. The panning/tilting motion is smooth and I look forward to working with it for many years. I give it 4 stars because it would have been nice to get a carrying bag with it. Buy it, you won't regret it.

Not For Me!

LQ, B&H Photo
10 February 2013
  • Excerpt: I used it for a short film video shoot. I was told it would suffice. I had a problem panning from left to right which caused me to have to direct my actors to move at a slower pace. I brought it back for a refund and purchased a Manfrotto. The extra money was worth the freedom! Using it ONLY for still photography would probably work best!
  • Cons: Small Range
